What is a breast lift?
A breast lift, or Mastopexy or a boob lift surgery, is a plastic surgery aiming to raise and reshape your breast by removing the sagging skin and excess tissue.
Due to many factors, your breast loses its elasticity gradually and starts to droop and sag. Breast lift surgery gives the solution to improve your breast shape and restore its youthful appearance.
It is essential to know that this procedure reshapes the breast with no changes in size. It can be done individually or included with boob job surgery or Breast Reduction Surgery if necessary.
Before deciding to get mastopexy surgery, it would be best to meet your surgeon to find the appropriate procedure for you according to your needs.
What causes sagging breasts?
Many factors can cause your breast to droop and stretch,
- Pregnancy: During the pregnancy, the breast bonds expand, and the breast becomes heavier than usual. These changes cause sagging after giving birth.
- Age: as a result of the aging process, the breast bonds stretch gradually, and your breast droops over time.
- Weight changes: Significant weight changes cause your breast to sag and stretch.
- Gravity: causes saggy boobs.
Saggy breast problem makes many women intend to undergo boob lift surgery to solve this problem.
This procedure is suitable for all ages. However, the surgeon might postpone performing Mastopexy surgery for some reason. For instance:
- If you are a teenager and your breast is still growing. It is preferable to wait to have the completed breast shape.
- If you still think of having children, you need to postpone the surgery.
- If you plan to lose weight, your surgeon will advise you to defer Mastopexy surgery till you reach the desired weight.

How is Mastopexy surgery done?
This process can be done under general anesthesia. It lasts for two to three hours.
The surgeon will make an incision to start the procedure.
There are three options of the incision’s location:
- Around the areola area.
- Starting from the area around the areola and towards under the breast (A keyhole-shaped incision).
- T-shaped incision.
Then they will remove the loose skin, reshape the breasts, reposition the nipples, and reduce the size of the areola area to fit the new breast shape.
The surgeon will close the incision with stitches and cover your breasts with gauze to complete the surgery.
Breast Lift Recovery
After the surgery, you will be in the recovery room under observation by the medical crew. You can go home back on the same day, or you may need to stay for one night at the hospital, depending on the used type of anesthesia.
